Higher Love: Fear, manipulation, dependency... And decimation of any part of who you are Is not based on a foundation of love Believe in a higher love One that sleeps and wakes on a bed of respect One that sings through a harmony of hope A higher love Born from recalling long-lost sweethearts of your soul Ancient hearts that feel like yours And love like yours
One particularly harmful idea carried by our cultural narrative is that you need to find someone who will love you. Imagine if we believed this about any other basic need: food, water, oxygen. If you needed another person to provide you with those, you’d be considered dependent—if not disabled. Yet we so willingly put ourselves in this state with love.
